Over one week after our computer crashed the simple cardboard box it came in continues to be a big hit. While I am still trying to learn all the ins and out of updated technology the children prefer to enjoy one the simplest toys around. This phenomena is far from new. However for parents who worry that their children are becoming too dependent on electronic media seeing the pleasure of a box can really relieve a lot of worries.
Here all three of them get into the act. The box alternated between a boat, car and plane. Here it is a place, notice the “wings” folded up on the side. Even baby Mavis wanted to come along for the ride.
Here we have a good old fashioned jungle gym, another favorite was trying it upside down and just practicing getting on top of it for Mavis.
Avril outside her little closet. The only problem with this one was the older children liked being closed inside and Mavis definitely did not.
Even the cat Carrie gets in one it. Yes the box is still in our living room. Sure it makes it look a little cluttered but it does wonders for me pysche.
